Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Stunning and brutally powerful, Falconer tells the story of a man named Farragut, his crime and punishment, and his struggle to remain a man in a universe bent on beating him back into childhood. Only John Cheever could deliver these grand themes with the irony, unforced eloquence, and exhilarating humor that make Falconer such a triumphant work of the moral imagination.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Random House US | Ezekiel Farragut erlebt die Hölle auf Erden: Der drogensüchtige Universitätsdozent kommt ins Gefängnis Falconer, nachdem er mit einem Schürhaken seinen Bruder erschlagen hat. Wer aber von ihnen war Kain? Wer Abel? In der brutalen, trostlosen Gefängniswelt erlebt Farragut unerwartet eine intensive Liebe zu einem Mitgefangenen. Er lässt seine Ehe und Kindheit Revue passieren und erkennt, wie umfassend seine Unfreiheit ist und schon immer war. Bald hat er nur noch einen Gedanken: Flucht. Falconer ist der Roman eines Süchtigen, der die Drogenabhängigkeit und die Schranken der Strafanstalt hinter sich lässt. Ein bewegendes Buch, drastisch, ironisch und doch von lebenskluger Heiterkeit. John Cheever, der einige Jahre im Hochsicherheitsgefängnis Sing Sing unterrichtete, zeichnet in Willkommen in Falconer das facettenreiche, ungeschönte Porträt eines Menschen, der den Wert seines Lebens erst zu schätzen weiß, als er es zu verlieren droht. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 210 gr | 244 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780679737865
